In his career Walter Sickert drew and painted very few still-life subjects. In 1919 and 1920, however, he undertook a series of still lifes at his home in Envermeu in northern France, including Roquefort c.1919–20 (Tate N03847). Sickert used an account book to draw this still-life, as he had done in A Café-Bar, Dieppe c.1914 (TGA 8120/3/1).
